New experience this year. I tried a garden when I first moved into this house in 2001, but I didn't know what I was doing and I gave up--except for the herbs--when deer and/or groundhogs and/or rabbits ate everything else. This year, though, because of the economy and as a way to help the environment, I decided to get more serious. I found a friend to co-garden with, someone who knew what was what when it came to planting, and with some help I built a fence that I'm hopeful will keep the critters out. The picture shows part of the fence and some of the seed trays, along with some of the lettuces we planted this weekend.
The garden is enormous. If this works, we're going to be swimming in vegetables.
